Propellerhead Reason 10.2 launched with official feature list
The Propellerhead Reason 10.2 update is here, and it’s packed with a load of highly-requested user features.
So, we recently covered the Propellerhead Reason 10.2 public beta release, and it must have been a success as most, if not all, of the features they were looking at tackling have been added to the update. One of the major additions to Reason 10.2 is the new multi-lane MIDI editing capabilities, you can select multiple MIDI clips across various tracks and edit them all within one editor window. They’ve also added the ability to select and edit multiple tracks in the mixer.
Another welcome feature is the zoom-adaptive grid that allows you to snap clips, notes and other data to a grid based on your windows zoom amount. This is a huge workflow improvement, and I wish all DAWs would introduce it, as it makes the process more intuitive for editing the finer details.
Propellerhead Reason 10.2 also sees workflow improvements in the form of new quick-access “add device” buttons, that allow you to quickly add new project elements wherever you are. This means that you no longer have to jump between windows to get new sounds going.
Any other new features? And what’s the damage?
Propellerhead Reason 10.2 introduces a new MIDI controller auto-detect function, no more need for setup. You also now have the ability to right-click on any audio output and route it directly to an audio channel on your mixer and set up your DAW to return to the start position when you stop the playback (This seems small but it’s actually a huge deal for those who do a lot of audio editing).
Owners of Propellerhead Reason 10 will receive a free update to 10.2, if you own any previous version of Reason you can upgrade to 10 for only USD $129 (Around R1900) or if you’re new to Reason, you can grab a full license for USD $399 (Around R6000).
